under the tutelage of some officers and a redheaded guy named john stanton. so this philosopher, the adviser said to me, go back and tell me this is an oral interview. because he and i had talked. so during the second class, he spoke in japanese than with him from midway to class because akamai been in japan for like a year. then he started in speaking in latin. i three years of latin in high school. last night that didn't include link and hide. that didn't even include the time i went to her home and cut her grass and got more latin. so he started talking in latin and so i responded to him. so i said the reiser said he would give me an oral interview. he said, we've read edifice. as it how do you spell at? [inaudible] [laughter] he went through all the stuff i'd already read because i was played. and once he told me how to pronounce it, then there's that literature. so he had a lecture over time, a speaking aid, where he would tell the story himself. i bless his soul, he died in note five. i was the last person to speak within. he had an aneurysm. he saved his life, i've got to

the other day. love to get your comment on this. >> great story. from a story done by john stanton, our friend from "buzzfeed." he points out a couple of facts here. republicans seem to be acting like it is 1912, not 2012. yesterday they appointed their 19 chairs of their committees, all of them men. all of them were men and not only that, by the way republicans also pushed a border security bill through yesterday so all of this talk about problems that republicans have with demographics, with hispanic community and women they seem to throw that all aside. >> bill: i would have to add 19 white men. they're the only people they could find as chairs for their committees. it says something about the difference between the two parties, doesn't it? >> absolutely. all you have to do is watch c-span and look at the floor of the house. you can see the lack of diversity on one side and the other half of the room that looks like the united states. i thank it was even sad within their leadership, they fought, you know, a wo

chair just to show a little diversity? >> they even said, john stanton from "buzzfeed" who was our guest earlier this week said michigan congresswoman candace miller was a prime contender for the house homeland security committee chair and she didn't get it. >> bill: they jumped over her to take a white guy who was on -- not even on that committee but on some other committee and bumped him up. i forget his name. >> on that note, just a few moments ago on a different tv show, stuart stevens romney adviser was on giving a post-mort emof what happened with the election. he said we didn't do a good enough job reaching out to hispanic voters and women voters. that was their problem. that's why -- he admitted that's why they lost the election. >> bill: all right. there you go. now -- have they learned anything? i would say the answer is no! by the way among african-americans, democrats 41 african-americans in the democratic caucus. with allen west getting booted out. there will be one republican african-american in

secretary edwin stanton thought that 33-year-old sheraton too too young when he proposed in july that he command the new arm any of the shenandoah. sheridan's size contributed to the impression of youth that he projected. he was 5'5" and only 115 pounds in 1864. but as grants memorable belie areply -- i think you'll find him big enough for the job. before ate -- appointment, the federal general and 14,000 troops marched down the shenandoah valley. crossing the river and threat in to washington. it was a tremendous shock. they were thrown to a panic. he rushed troops to the city from the outside of peter berg and early withdrew. to prevent a recurrence, the lincoln administration merged four military department in to a new one. the sheridan in charge of it. he was ordered to pursue the army to the death and destroy the shenandoah valley grain, produce, and livestock. grant told share dan don should be nothing left to invite the enemy to return. a first he did more than maneuver. he been cautioned to not go on the defensive. a defeat would harm president lincoln's re-election chances in no

. this is my favorite part. ready? the marlins' best player, stanton, voiced his frustration, he tweeted, "alright, i'm pissed off, plain and simple." >> he could be the first player in the history of baseball, 40 home runs and 40 rbis, he's going to have no one on base ahead of him. the winter ownerings meetings, major league baseball owners meetings, start today in chicago. and i would not be surprised if this was point one on the table among these owners. because this guy, the owner of the marlins, jeff loria, has raped this franchise repeatedly. and this time at the expense of, as you pointed out, the taxpayers of dade county in florida, building a brand-new stadium and then -- this is ridiculous. get the team out of there. >> this is the most unprincipled, ridiculous argument that's ever made. all of those things may be true. but the only reason you're saying this, number one, the only reason -- >> because i wanted josh johnson. >> because all those guys are on the jays and it's going to be that much harder for the red sox to make it to the playoffs. last year when the red sox dumpe

decides to go ahead and fire stanton and, you know, it is just -- it is a remarkable profile on courage, that he was sitting there fighting for the constitution, fighting for presidential prerogative and came within a vote of being removed from office. and prior to bill clinton the only president to be impeached. these aren't all stories about guy that is did the wise thing or looking back from the point of 200 years later was the thing that was the best for the presidency -- best for the country. it was at that moment he stood up, risked his political future to do what he believed was right for the country is and certainly right for the presidency. >> you have this note in here mary todd lincoln wrote to a friend. it combines the drinking of andrew johnson and also the card that we read from john wilkes booth. >> that's right. >> do you remember when that was made public, that note? >> i don't. i don't. >> it doesn't say. but i wondered if -- >> no. i think it was -- >> at the time? >> yes, i think so. if not, it certainly was the case that this thought was out there, that he had been

leader. television news did not make money. >> tell folks what the famous, was it frank stanton, it was bill bailey, came to you folks who are producers and journalists at cbs and said, remember? >> he used to call us the jewels in his crown speak he also said don't worry about making money. >> that's right. don't you guys worry about that. and what that meant was that when went out to do a story, we were totally absorbed in the story. we weren't worried about how much money it would take to cover the story. we just did it. even as late as 1980, i remember being able to charter a plane from rome to istanbul, because you thought you might be able to get an interview with somebody important. we didn't have to check with new york at all. >> but now, now we have become profit centers at the networks. you know, with the cable stations. being a prophet sent is a huge responsibility. because it means that you start thinking in a different way. you start thinking not so much about what the public ought to hear, but rather what the public wants to hear. you are now in competition with th

go. >> i am tom stanton. i teach at johns hopkins street, i would like to talk about administrative capacity, which is different from the discussion of authorities that congress might give fha to adjust premiums or what ever. i am curious, sarah, you and nick would see this and that made 1990's thought and the private mortgage industry killed that so fast all of our heads spun. i was told how much they disliked the idea. what are the politics this time around, because that strikes me as one of the few ways one could get to the improvements in people, processes, and assistance. >> well, my experience at that time is one that i think about a lot, what the opportunities are now. at the end of the day, there were two sets of ideas embodied in the proposal we had at the time. one was the ability to deal with the administrative flexibility and hiring a computer systems and the like. other was programmatic, giving us the ability to essentially doubled the products that we serve a long performance measures. i think the real objection to what came from folks in the industry was about the pro
